Turns out mine will be ready on Thursday as opposed to tomorrow as I reported yesterday. It was just released, so I'm assuming it's awaiting a truck to drive it down here to San Diego.

Have any of you tried to call the 800 #? Mine went from "in transit" to "at the port waiting for a vessel". LOL!!!

I went nuts last night and today buying a bunch of mods, all cosmetic mods.

1. Painted Reflectors
2. Set appt. for ceramic tint 30-35% all around
3. OEM short shift knob
4. Custom Pedals (shiny brushed smooth with dome grips, 335i engraving and heel/toe)
5. H8 GP Thunders for the angels and H3 MTec Super Whites for cornering lights
6. CF Roundels
7. Matte Grille

Still trying to decide on my wheels and tires and I will be debadging once I get it. Anyone else preparing for their baby?

Just going to to painted reflectors for now, until I can figure out the Tech package, EDC gizmo's on this thing.

On the list, will for sure be either SS Sport exhaust(which i had on my e46M3) or Eisenmann Sport Exhaust.

Did however schedule a clear bra install with Premier on Saturday, I think it's a must (but $$$), especially if you ever go to the track or do a lot of highway driving. Going to do full bumper, hood, and partial fenders.

Even though I'm not too found of them, once Dinan comes out with EDC friendly springs, I'll probbaly switch to that.

So, I'm new to the e92 set up, is it possible to just have the welcome lights(halos) on while driving, as opposed to the day time running lights(don't like these)?

Where are you getting your tint done? I was looking for a reputable place that has ceramic tint.

On the E92, the angel eye halos are the DRLs

PIAA makes an LED light kit for E92 to turn the halos from yellow to white - looks very nice

This is the contents of an email I recieved from my SA today

Anthony your car shows that is not in port yet.

I check different sites and it is confirmed that Vessel did not arrived yet. Weird



Here is Wessel info and tracking info

Shipping Info.:

CA0009
NYK


Vessel: GREEN COVE
Voyage No.: 062
Bill Of Lading No.: 540029370
Xref No.:09682-08


What is the 800 number to call to track the order? The only one I have is BMW customer service and last time i called them they said they dont have any information after the car leaves Germany and that i had to contact my dealer for details.

Are you guys already getting your cars?

I've been tracking the Green Cove as well and according to my dealer the boat is just sitting on the water because apparently there is another boat in front of it. This is my 1st post here, but I've been tracking the boat over at bimmerfest.

My car arrived at the dealer later in the day. I was able to drop by and see it. She was being PDI'd. My car was up on a lift being inspected by a technician. Man was she beautiful!!! Alpine White and Coral Red! They weren't able to PDI it and get it washed/detailed in time. What a tease!!! So we just went over all the terms of the contract and I'm going to pick it up tomorrow (Friday) after work, probably around 6pm. I will have pictures shortly. I can't sleep!!!!

Hey guys- Unfortunately, since I'm in the financial markets industry, it was impossible for me to get out of work this past week and head to Marin( I live in SF); especially since I am trying to keep it hush hush that I upgraded vehicles.

I'm heading down there today at 2 to pick her up. This has by far been the biggest "Blue Balls" two days i've dealt with in a while.

My buddy's a tech at the dealer I am picking my car up at so I requested that he be the service staff to QC my car. He also hooked me up and installed the aluminum pedal set for me; so it's just sitting in their showroom.

The next few hours are going to be so fricken slow!

Will post a few pics tomorrow after my clear bra install!

Do you have your ride yet?

Congratulations. Hopefully my car was on the same truck. I called yesterday and it still wasn't there. They said they would give me a call when it got there. Waiting sucks
BTW where are you getting your tint done and about how much will it run you for the ceramic tint?

Email from my SA forwarded me today....
Hello,

The ship this car was on arrived on 4/6, but it takes about 1 week for a car to get cleared by customs. Then about another week for us to process it here at the VDC, assuming there are no issues with the car that need to be repaired first, prior to releasing the car.



Have a good Friday!

I'm starting to get pissed..... I really hope my car wasnt f-ed up when they shipped it....

The wait is killing me too. I dropped mine off on Feb 23rd in Munich... I hope mine doesn't have any damage either because when I dropped it off it didn't have the smallest scratch anywhere on it.

Lean on them... Where did you get it again? BMW San Diego?
I usually get my tints from Hot Spots down in Chula Vista, my cousin got his there too. They did a really good job. I asked them what kind of tint they use and they said ceramic ( not sure of the brand). It surprised me cause I didn't mention about needing ceramics. They said they'd charge me $149, which sounds extremely cheap, which makes me wonder. Do you know of any reputable shops? I want to get mine ASAP and the soonest they can get me in is 2 weeks from today (Saturday).

This is ridiculous. So I'm actually going over to BMW of San Diego this afternoon to be like WTF!!!! They told me the car should arrive on the 9th or 10th and still nothing yet. I didn't even get a call explaining the hold up. Wish me luck.

As for the tint, that is an awesome price for ceramic. I was reading another thread somewhere and was expecting you to say it would be about $350 to $400. If it's legit ceramic tint I will def be headed down there. Thank you
